Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH: In The Shadow Of The Beast (back to '79 - surprise)...repost

Just resurrecting an older post regarding todays history show 'cause I'm too lazy to retype everything.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd79-10-28.sbd-aud.braverman.7602.sbeok.shnf
This was the source I had, but this Miller SBD I think is a touch better, less hiss, but you be the judge. Both of them don't have much high end which makes me think that there was either Dolby somewhere in there or at least more than one generation. If someone has the master, please, oh please, put it up.

If I've talked about this one before, forgive me if I return to the scene of the crime as it got me going nicely this morning.
This show comes the night after the masterpiece that is 10/27/79 Cape Cod with the monster second set and, mainly because of that, doesn't get the credit it so richly deserves. The Halfstep opener is one of the better I've heard and the fact that is segues sweetly into a repeat of the previous night's Franklins is yet another bonus. That Franklins, however, is not as strong and tends to get a little plodding. But there are tastier nuggets to be had in this show. The Passenger is exceptional and the TMNS is quite nice. My favorite two are the China/Rider 2nd set opener that has one of the sweetest transition jams of the Brent era. Sure chair-breaker there. Also ready to destroy any seating items is the Playin'. Wow. Amazing performance. Jerry's fingers are flying from start to finish.

So, basically, if you've perhaps overlooked this one due to the deserved attention paid to the previous night, do yourself a favor and cue this sucker up.

10/27/79: 5 broken chairs
10/28/79: a solid 4.5 broken chairs

Keeping right in line with the previous two suggestions I have to give a nod to 11/05/1979. The 11/06 show gets a lot of attention and deservedly so. However, this 11/05 show? Wow. A killer China Cat>IKYR opener(?!?) leads into SOLID performances of Cassidy, FOTD, El Paso, Stagger, Passenger, Peggy, and TMNS. In other words, the entire first set is on point.

The second set opens up with a wonderfully played Althea and Easy To Love You and then.... a 20 minute+ Eyes. The Eyes>Estimated>Franklin's is a wonderfully constructed and executed trio that I dig more and more every time I hear it.

So, basically, if you've perhaps overlooked this one due to the deserved attention paid to the NEXT night, do yourself a favor and cue this sucker up.

Thanks, SDH, for bringing up 10/27 & 28. I haven't visited either of those in a while. Guess now is as good a time as any.

Daliguana - do you have covers for 1-23-70, 9-19-70, 9-20-70 and 4-17-72? You seem to be pretty good at this!

Thanks SDH, I've got this laying around somewhere. Another 79 gem that is not often praised is 11/2/79. The AUD here is pretty dern good, I popped it in the car stereo on the way to work and the Half-step > Franklins is outstanding, the boys really rock it and jam it in franklin's (the rest of the show is none too shabby).

Every deadhead should give this show a listen.

Also, 11-5-79 is tasty with a 23 minute Eyes. Philly Spectrum style. Nice Audience recording here as well.

Very nice. Thanks. Can someone tell me what exactly does Bayo mean in Stagger Lee as well as double e in China Cat. Also, what does Aiko-Aiko all day mean and one more-Jockomo feno na na nay? I know I'm a little behind on these but any reply would be fine-Thanks-By the way, what great interplay between Bobby and Jerry on this one-nice mix!

You're right on about 11/2. Another gem of a show.


Rob - I know that you have often sung the praises of the Halfstep>Franks opener from this one a I agree whole heartedly.
